COMMENTS

Form a circulant matrix from a given number. Find the determinant. Use that determinant to form the next circulant matrix. Repeat. If a determinant is negative, multiply each element of the next matrix by -1. 1007749 is the smallest number whose chain appears to increase without bound. (It would be nice to have a proof that this chain is unbounded!)

If we had started at 247, the next term in the chain, and all subsequent terms, would be 247, since (see A219324)

..........| 2 4 7 |

247 = det | 7 2 4 |. - N. J. A. Sloane, Dec 18 2019

..........| 4 7 2 |
